Dermapen4 is one of the newest and safest applications of microneedling. Here, we use ‘the pen’ to deliver a highly concentrated vitamin cocktail into the skin. We needle vertically so we don’t injure the skin. By working in this way, your cells get a stimulus to create new connective tissue fibres and so we can obtain skin improvement.
Microneedling is a technique in which fine needles make 1200 holes per second to release growth factors. As blood vessels are punctured, platelets are released, triggering the skin’s natural repair process. This accelerates the production of collagen and elastin, making the skin stronger, smoother and more even. Dermapen offers the possibility of changing depth to address various skin problems.
-Wrinkles and fine lines
-Sagging and ageing skin
-Sallow, dull skin
-Acne and acne scars
-Blackheads, impurities and/or clogged pores
-Wide pores and/or coarse skin structure
It is a treatment that requires a few sessions (every 4 to 6 weeks) to achieve the desired results. Why Dermapen in spa form? By treating in spa form, the dermapen gives a real boost to the skin. Prior to the first treatment, an intake interview and photos of the skin are taken. In this way, improvements in the skin can be properly monitored.
What is PRP?
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma: plasma with a high concentration of platelets.
A blood sample is taken by Dr. Ivar van heijningen, then the blood is centrifuged. The platelets are separated from the other blood cells.
The body’s own platelets are then kneaded into the skin using the Dermapen.
The platelets release growth factors, the high concentration of growth factors stimulates the body to repair ageing or damaged tissue.
We are going to start stimulating collagen and elastin, this will give us firmer and smoother skin.
